This is a sensational story, brutal and bloody, but a true account of one of the biggest murders in mob history.

Confession: "King of Bootleggers" Murder by Nicholas Antony Parisi is one of the most gripping true crime stories I have ever read. Be warned: it is not for the faint-hearted. It is graphic in its detail and brings to light the horrors of mob life, the corruption within the mob families and on the outside, and the fascinating trial with a surprise request from the jury.
